The Golden Circle, Blue Lagoon & Kerið Volcanic Crater

Based on 33 traveller reviews

Join this tour to discover the pure power of mother Earth as you explore the area where the American and Eurasian tectonic plates comes together, where you discover the giant waterfall which is the most important for all Icelanders, enjoy the geothermal areas and in the end of the day soak into the Blue Lagoon!

This is the most popular day tour in Iceland. Geysers, The Golden waterfall, Thingvellir and the Blue lagoon is a classic. We want to add something unique to your experience and that's why we will also visit the big volcanic crater called Kerid. The crater is 270 m wide and more than 55 m deep. There is a lake in the bottom of the crater which gives it a little bit of magic. The lake is almost 14 m deep.

Thingvellir National park is the National shire of all Icelanders. It lies within the belt of volcanic activity and fissures which pass across Iceland, a part of the mid-Atlantic ridge, the junction of the american and Eurasian tectonic plates. It is a nice feeling to stand with your right foot in Europe and the left one in America.

Geysir - the biggest geysers of Haukadalur are Strokkur and Geysir itself, which gives the others their name. Strokkur erupts every 5 to 10 minutes, throwing a column of water into the air to a height of 20 to 30 meters.

Gullfoss is one of the most amazing waterfalls in Iceland.

You end the day at the Blue Lagoon arriving there before 5pm (17:00) for a relaxing time in the amazing hot geothermal waters. You will spend 2 hours in total at the Blue Lagoon before heading back to Reykjavik.

Entrance to the Blue Lagoon is not included in the tour and must be purchased at own expense in advance to enter. You can book directly on the Blue Lagoon's website. If tickets to the Blue Lagoon are not available on their website then please let us know as soon as possible and not later than 48 hours before your tour departure, as we can in many cases supply standard tickets to the Blue Lagoon (subject to demand).

Great trip! Good and helpful guide. Allowed us plenty of time at the sites and small group was good. Blue lagoon experience was fantastic and iceland is beautiful! Thank you!

I take this tour yesterday, and the guide is very nice and handsome. And I really like the musics that played on the way, if that possible, could you give the songs name for me! Thank you very much! Of course, the Iceland is amazing ! I like here! I really want to came here again and take your company's travel again!

Great tours with this company, knowledgeable guides and amazing sights in Iceland. Did Golden circle and South coast tours, tour guides were friendly and informative, small groups and saw all the sights. Recommend.

Amazing throughout- perfectly organised! The tour guide was incredible too!

Epic! Could not have chosen a better guide (thanks Lu)! Our group was small so it felt very intimate and flexible, Lu made sure we kept to schedule so we'd see all the sights though, which was appreciated. We not only saw beautiful sights but learned a lot about Icelandic culture and heritage along the way. 5 stars, would absolutely recommend and hope to do again :)

This was an incredible small group tour. Our tour guide was amazing (Lu) and provided us with a lot of information about the Icelandic landscape, history, and culture. She was super nice too :) We saw so much in one day and ended with a relaxing trip to the Blue Lagoon. I highly recommend this tour and if you can recommend a tour guide - definitely ask for Lu!!

This was fantastic. Great pick up (and on time!) and a small mini bus so very good. Great stops along the way, good value for money and excellent timings. Tour guide was ace (Bob!) and was really knowledgeable, friendly and fun! He was quite new but made a real effort. The only thing to be improved would be the speaker system in the bus. Couldnt always hear him speaking. Also Blue Lagoon was packed. Not very enjoyable to be honest!

Amazing day eventhough it was raining. The trip was planned perfectly. The guide was patient and he spoke good English. And the music in the van was awesome. I would definitely recommend this tour group to anyone looking for a great experience seeing Iceland!

Such a great day, it was planned very very well, we were picked up from our hotel on time and kept very well informed on where we were going. Well recommended!

Nice travel! Comfortably arranged and guided. About 2 hours stay in Blue Lagoon, feels perfectly good.

We had a great time on our tour with Tomas! The driver started by saving the day when picking us up and helping us figure out the parking meters in Reykjavik (above and beyond!) We then enjoyed the many stops around the golden circle and learning some of the fun facts that they shared. I would definitely recommend this tour group to anyone looking for a great experience seeing Iceland!

The tour guide did his best for the horrible weather we had! Unfortunately the bus was a half an hour late. If you want to see all these sights in one day it's worth it, doesn't feel too long nor too short.

Antonio is a wonderful tour guide, full of energy and knowledge. He is funny and take good care of us. I'd suggest to wear waterproof clothes and boots if you are going during Oct and Nov. This tour covers many major sites, and you get to spend sometime in Blue Lagoon after. It's perfect!


The trip was well done! The weather unfortunately wasn't great, but the guide made the best of it. The Blue Lagoon was definitely the highlight for me.

This is an EXCELLENT trip! Even though it was raining the sights were amazing. Good value for the money.

Great value trip to some amazing sights. Definitely recommend it!

Great trip and the guide was so funny. Loved the geyser and the waterfall. Incredible sights with nice people.

It's interesting trip!! Nice guide, nice place Everthing is good!

I did this tour on my first full day in Iceland, and it was the perfect start to my stay. The Kerid crater was absolutely worth checking out alongside the more well-known must-see sights. Our guide Antonio made sure we not only saw the wonders of nature from the best spots but also heard a lot of facts and stories about the regions. Antonio and our driver, "the highlands legend" Arnar, kept the atmosphere relaxed and comfortable throughout the day!

i had a really nice day of the gold circle tour. The arrangement was great, and the tour guide Antonio was absolutely helpful an full of knowledge of Iceland. He knows really well about this country, explained to us very clearly,and funny. We all had a nice trip.

We had an extraordinary experience with Lucia. She was amazing and together with our driver Yonn, we had an amazing experience. She was full of information, was very very thoughtful and together with our driver, they went way out of their way to make the tour very very special for us. We strongly recommend this trip to anyone. They made our day very educational and so worth it.

I enjoyed this trip a lot! Blue lagoon is a must-go. Other people in this group skipped it, but please don't! It is a perfect ending of the day.

This is a must-do tour. Our guide was very friendly and knowledgeable and we learnt a lot about Icelandic history. The highlight for me was the beautiful Gullfoss waterwall. I cried when I saw it. After a day of sightseeing around the Golden Circle, the perfect way to relax was at the Blue Lagoon. I had a very special experience. I highly recommend it! Thanks for everything! Maya

There is no heating on the car, the weather storms and heavy rain, into the car and very crowded, the company did not feel so good evaluation.
